ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jay Critch is a young and fast-rising American rapper. Born in the Clinton Hills neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York in 1997, he began making an impact while still in his teens. The first music he released to the world was defined by grittiness, with trap inflected drums and a lo-fi DIY aesthetic all making it immediately stand out. A first breakthrough came with his song ‘Did It Again’, which was released in the first part of 2017 and starred a cameo appearance from Rich the Kid who added some of his own verses to the track. Critch’s rapping combined with his streetwise fashion sense and fiercely independent attitude has made him a firm favorite with the youth of the day.
His first song soon went viral and spread around the world. The accompanying video was viewed more than a million times in only the first week of release and really announced Jay Critch on the scene. Since then he has put out various singles and videos which have all continued to show he is an exciting and ever-evolving artist with plenty to say. Jay Critch is very much the next generation of rap superstars to have emerged from the United States.
